Shares of the old Cuban – American right they are linked to limiting words of freedom: close, stop, suspend, restrict. These days have highlighted two. On them we have been talking this week in our “The afternoon moves” and in this article I summarize some ideas.
Miami city qualifies as the unusual. Rightist, politically defined by their hatred of the Cuban Revolution, they find another way to project that opposing what is done on the island. They have no star to guide and walk forward, only care criticize and obstruct the march for a sustainable and sovereign socialism. Miami and the press is ready to cover the Seventh Party Congress, how will? It will be attentive to that is said in Havana from there to defame and distort. He does not care or is able to undertake otherwise.
The right of Miami to become one of the vigilant persecutors of the conference sessions of the Cuban communists, is as unusual as that same right, who came to assassinate Carlos Muniz Varela, a pioneer in the creation of the travel agency “Varadero” to connect to Cubans inside and outside the island, is now an advocate of the right of Cuban Americans to travel to Cuba.
Those who today use demagogically the right to travel to Cuba to its objectives are the same as yesterday they killed so that these trips are not made. The recognition of having fought for that freedom will be given to the journalist Francisco Aruca González;and others as he denounced the extremists who have always wanted to prevent, expensive or outlawing those trips.
And I wonder, since it is not discriminate, why not also defend the right of Americans to travel to Cuba without restrictions, and not just Cuban Americans? Itmust be because behind that media play which pursues the right is not really altruistic.
Given the smallness of view of this right, we must also say that want to win a lawsuit the company “Carnival”, which they accuse of discriminating against Cuban Americans. Caution Cuba by Cuban Americans travel by ferry or cruise to the island, it is not political but national security. These boats arehome to thousands of people and can transfer huge loads, and control processes are much more complicated than that carried on aircraft. Particularly concerned about cruises departing from Miami and at some point will touch Cuban coast. The most dangerous of that demand, however, it is that once located in court, a judge may treat “discrimination” and effectively prevent a cruise ship departs for Cuba.That seek; besides money.
Until the conditions do not offer all the guarantees, this seems to be a requirement to bring the Cuban port authorities in the contracts. Apparently this is not such an unreasonable clause, when a company like “Carnival” accepted. This is also part of the statement that the normalization of relations between Cuba andthe United States is a complex process.
Speaking of sights low, the mayor of Miami Beach Philip Levine said that behind the demonstrations to prevent the opening of a consulate in that city, may be the electoral ambition of a person related to the so –called Commission on Hispanic Affairs, specifically reactivated for this case.
At the moment, there is no green light in Miami Beach to open a Cuban consulate in their land; but this is not something that can be defined in Miami, it has full authority and the federal government have to abideby what he says. If it is said from the administration of President Obama that a consulate will be located in Miami Beach, because we have put in Miami Beach, no matter if it’s in the middle of Collins Avenue. This has been recognized to the mayor of the city of Miami Tomas Regalado, very active in pressing for approval of such refusal.
The vote against the consulate was 4 to 3; with the presence of tens of people brought from other areas to demonstrate and create a bad atmosphere against the consulate which, incidentally, Cuba has not yet officially requested; although surely it has been discussed.
They were the usual suspects : Silvia Iriondo, Orlando Gutiérrez Boronat, Miguel Saavedra, Ramon Saul Sanchez. The latter, a former member of violent organizations in Miami and today advocate of “peaceful struggle” boasts that escort with his boat to cruise “Carnival” you want to play ports of Cuba, regardless of the violation of regulations on safety maritime already exist between Cuba and the United States. It may be only a threat to make the news, but is so serious that you should stop not attend.
Ramon Saul Sanchez himself, with his provocation, is giving reason the Cuban government about the wisdom that deserves the maritime trade with theUnited States; because if someone has or has been allocated resources to perform such a delicate harass a cruise full of tourists on their journey to the island, shouting slogans and anti – Cuban propaganda showing them act, what else would not try to retain those trips, or simply delay them on their way out to annoy the tourists?
This logic against cruise ships is the same logic that led to the murder, says the criminal Luis Posada Carriles that “accidental”, Fabio di Celmo. And all to harm the economy of tourism in Cuba, they believe the last bastion of the Cuban Revolution. Crimes and crimes against Cuban tourism actually work as auxiliary lock; They are not disconnected: both wantto uselessly frighten the people of Cuba for material needs.
